OSU hosts first acidified foods school

July 13, 2004

CORVALLIS - Oregon State University will hold its first Acidified Foods School on Monday and Tuesday, July 26-27, in Wiegand Hall on the OSU campus.

Co-sponsored by the Food Processors Institute, this event is designed to meet the FDA requirement for commercial processors of acidified foods. A significant increase in the number of Oregonians interested in processing acidified foods has prompted the creation of this school, according to Mark Daeschel, food scientist at OSU.

This is a modified version of the Better Process Control School and was recently approved by FDA-CFSAN. The regular Better Process Control School will continue to be offered each January to meet the needs of both low-acid and acidified food processors.

Registration is required for this event. For more information and registration, contact Mark Daeschel (541-737-6519) or Yanyun Zhao (541-737-9151) at OSU's Department of Food Science and Technology.
